Old Work/New Art

The above piece is old. I haven't lived in this place for over 3 years, and I haven't worked in this monochromatic style in at least 5 years. Yesterday, while thinking about a fund-raising piece for a local charity that works with at risk youth who has an annual event called 'Starry Starry Night' (a Van Gogh challenge of sort)-- I remembered this piece. I think I can plagarize myself and make a smaller version (12"x12") with more color to pay respect to the 'Bedroom' piece by Vincent. I'm feeling a bit excited about the prospect of getting a 'do-over' on a piece. And of course, the excitement of working through and making changes isn't bad either. All is good in my world. I've got another large piece (24"x24") on deck for completion for yet another charity auction. I believe I'm building up some great karma for future use.
